What about AI texting?

There is no specific Federal Communications Commission (FCC) guidance or Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) legal precedent regarding artificial intelligence (AI) texting systems. However, texts sent by such a system must comply with the TCPA. Automated texts of any kind, sent from autodialing or AI software, require consent.

There is an ongoing TCPA lawsuit related to messages sent by a hotel’s AI-powered digital concierge. It could provide some legal precedent as to how AI texting will be litigated and regulated under the TCPA.
